Reality television watchers love drama, dysfunction and dread, so it only makes sense that Miami International Airport is set to be the star of its own reality show, or excuse us, "docu-drama." The Travel Channel will start airing the program next year.

Last time I saw The Juan MacLean, it was at Poplife when it still called The District home. I actually didn't know who he was and had just sort of stumbled into the party.
